No Better Than They

  /   Sunday August 17, 2003  

I’ve often wondered why our hierarchy is unwilling to discipline dissenters, especially when they scandalize the faithful. Although many documents have been issued, few, if any have been enforced. This is a different story with the dissenters and their “dogma.” They are often more dogmatic than the orthodox. How many stories do you hear of priests being excluded from seminary on account of orthodoxy? How many times have we seen attempts to suppress orthodoxy by calling the orthodox “rigid” or “oppressive”?

Perhaps one reason that dissenters are not disciplined is that the orthodox don’t want to stoop to their level. However, I am not making excuses for those who do not exercise lawful authority. The orthodox have one major difference – they are right!
